Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: so true... maybe for some

My opinion - the first few years were just formative experimentation, finding their sound and style... so 1968 is the real flowering of the GD. I'd also be more generous with the time period, say 10 years - from 1968 to 1977, as an equivalent to the Beatles' 8 years. I'd be perfectly happy if they stopped about then... what followed after that was just more exposition, variations on the theme if you will, with the inclusion of one smash hit and some top-grossing touring years.
